Tom Hanks begins filming 'Greyhound' movie in Baton Rouge
UPI News Service, 03/11/2018
Principal photography has begun in Baton Rouge on "Greyhound," a World War II dramatic thriller written by and starring Tom Hanks.
"All of us at Sony are thrilled to join Playtone and FilmNation aboard the Greyhound. Tom Hanks has crafted a unique and compelling look at life aboard a destroyer in the early, uncertain days of WWII and we look forward to helping bring this story to the world," Sony Pictures' Steve Bersch said in a statement Friday.
"In the early days of WWII, an international convoy of 37 Allied ships, led by captain Ernest Krause in his first command of a U.S. destroyer, crosses the treacherous North Atlantic while hotly pursued by wolf packs of Nazi U-boats," a news release said.
Hanks, 61, is a two-time Oscar winner who recently starred in "The Post."
